Frequently Asked Questions
Omega-3 fatty acids are found in the green leaves of plants, like phytoplankton, algae and seaweed. This is the food that our food is designed to eat, which makes certain types of fish (young, wild-caught fish) a good source of omega-3’s. Unfortunately, due to poor meat quality, and over-consumption of processed and fast foods most of our diets are lacking in these essential fatty acids and are overly rich in pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids.
Omega-3s have many health benefits and are important for optimal health. Omega-3 fish oil contains docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Omega-3 EPA and DHA supports the following health benefits.
- Healthy triglyceride (blood fat) levels
- Promote a healthy heart and circulatory system
- Promote healthy joints and bones.
- Supports brain health and brain development in children and teens.
- Lower levels of depression and anxiety
- Supports eye health
- Supports healthy mood
Yes. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids with healthy diet and exercise may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
EPA (also called Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (also called Docosahexaenoic Acid) are the two most well researched forms of omega-3s. They are both essential fatty acids which means that your body can’t make these fatty acids, so you must get them through your diet. EPA and DHA are highly unsaturated fats that are vital nutrients and are known as “healthy fats” because of their importance to the healthy function of our bodies.
When choosing an omega-3 supplement, it is important to choose the purest form of omega-3 available for 3 reasons: 1) To eliminate unwanted fats, filler, by-products, and toxins 2) To improve the absorption and bioavailability of the omega-3 fatty acids by your body and 3) To eliminate fishy odor, taste and burping.
The American Heart Association recommends 2,000 mg – 4,000 mg of omega-3 per day if you have high triglycerides, 500 mg per day if you have no history of heart disease and 1,000 mg per day if you do.
DHA is a building block of tissue in the brain and retina of the eye. It helps with forming neural transmitters, which is important for brain function and the overall Central Nervous System. DHA is found in the retina of the eye and taking DHA may be necessary for maintaining healthy levels of DHA for normal eye function.
Consult with a healthcare professional before starting any supplement regimen, but research has shown DHA to be a vital to healthy development of your baby’s brain, nervous system, and eyes.
DHA fatty acids are important for every cell in the body, but for children, most of the research has focused on their role in promoting healthy brain development. DHAs help to promote children’s focus, attention, calmness and social skills. In addition, numerous studies have found that getting enough omega-3s may have a positive impact on children’s learning abilities.
Krill oil, Fish oil and cod liver oil are all good sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Your body uses omega-3 fatty acids from any of three sources the exact same way. When choosing an omega-3 supplement it is more important to choose the highest purity source of omega-3s than the source of the omega-3s.
